Vivian Maier

Vivian Maier died at 83 in 2009. In her spare time she liked to walk the streets and take photos but she didn't really go on about it so it was basically a secret.

In 2007 an auctioneer bought a box of over 100,000 of Vivian's negatives and unprocessed films. Turns out she was 'one of greatest street photographers of her day' and never bothered to tell anyone.

Unbelievable. Amazing. Sad. Inspiring.
